    MOSCOW, March 24 (RIA Novosti) - A prominent Russian scientist received a prestigious British award Friday for his achievements in a sphere that has made a significant contribution to seemingly diverse fields ranging from the aviation and chemical industries to agriculture.

    British Ambassador Tony Brenton handed the Gold Tribology Trust Medal to Professor Dmitry Garkunov, who became the fifth Russian scientist to receive this most important award in the branch of engineering that focuses on the interaction of surfaces in relative motion, their design, friction, wear and lubrication.

    Garkunov, who already has several Russian state prizes to his name, opened a new branch in tribology and made two important discoveries in the field of selective transfer and metal hydrogen wear. His inventions are widely used in engineering, as well as many other spheres.
